Xavier's Crawford to remain in NBA Draft

Crawford should stay in school one more year and posssible be a lottery pick next year.  His brother joe was a very good basketball player @ Kentucky (UK) and got picked late in the second round by the Lakers and now playing in the D-league.  My advise to Crawford is to return to school and have fun @ Xavier next year....

Xavier's Crawford to remain in NBA Draft

That's really too bad for XU. If their coach isn't leaving for another school it's a top scorer going pro for business reasons.  They were so close to getting to that final four this year.

College ball has virtually no returning stars any more. This guy would have been 1st team all america. At least he'll have the 2OT KSU game t motivate him.

I really miss 1980s and early 1990s NCAA hoops. Been downhill since.  Sorry Gary but it's best to ignore college basketball in the offseason. The news is rarely good for the sport.
